I think the ta05 ifs is a great racer. I'd get front aluminum steering knuckles as well as aluminum arms holders ( front and back) to make it more durable. Run a spool up front and get sway bars. Then go racing!

The TA05 by its self is a good car. I don't believe you'll see any performance gain with the inboard shocks.

Just so you know, you're going to have to rebuild the whole car. The TA05 chassis is different from the IFS chassis. But if you still want to go through with all of this, I'll give you what part numbers you may need.

I'll do you one better. You can download the manual for the TA05-IFS here. You should be able to cross check what you need.
